An Open Letter to My Daughter

Dear McKenzie,

Your father is a sentimentalist, prone to looking back upon events as he wishes them to be rather than how they actually were. Despite all the documentation I have managed to manufacture over these last few years, with all the photos, written notes, video clips and maps, it all still reflects what I wanted to take away from our time together. I want to portray your childhood as happy and fulfilling. Whether or not I succeed, you will be the judge.

Your loving father
